Ave Deus Mechanicus, brethren adepts

As of today, I will start working on a game-valid, Mechanicus army. This will consist of 2 formations, the death star Cohort Cybernetica and an Ironstrider Cavaliers.
As I understood from other members of the conclave, I should be able to field these 2 formations without needing to declare them as Unbounded.
However, as an adept that has just joined the ranks of the Mechanicus, I still have to learn the rules of Warhammer ? so for the time being this is more of a modelling project rather than a battle-ready army.

To please the Omnissiah, the army will be painted in Mars colours and will have its very own diorama. The terrain will be a raised, martian, smoking battlefield. Minimum debris/mechanical parts spread on the soil. However, I am thinking of adding the objective markers as well as part of the diorama, but for the moment I need inspiration to further expand on this subject.

Work has started with the small guys first. That?s the Dominus, the 2 Datasmiths and the 3 riders. Pictures just for the first 3, as the riders were a nightmare to get standing on their own only with blutac. Regarding the Datasmiths, I?m quite happy to see that while their posing is fairly rigid, it is possible to incline one to his left and get a much more dynamic stance.

And a very quick look at how I plan to build/arrange the diorama. Top and front view, for a better noospheric representation. Hexamathical measurements have been taken, and will result in a 45 x 33 centimetres board, in the lettering of Old Earth.

+Clarification: I do intend to use rail (o-Gauge, mode train scale, etc) smoke-generators tied to a series of thin pipes (straws?!) ...

Dakka Forum: Minor Annoyances in Games

As the title says, this isn't a thread about big things that cross the line. This is more about the little things that annoy you while playing but aren't really a big enough deal to discuss with the opponent. 

One for me is when people roll dice and send them scattering all over the table. I get its fun to roll lots of dice and you want to make sure that they really do roll, but it bugs me when someone rolls dice and they scatter in every direction into terrain and around models. 

I think it was in the 5th ed rule book there was a little blurb about if a die fails to land on the table it automatically counts as a failed roll. I love this rule and we use it often in friendly games.

Dakka Forum: Best Obscure Miniatures?

I was just looking through some websites today and I saw these croc "elfball" miniatures by Impact Miniatures and they got me thinking about what sort of cool miniatures there are out there that I probably haven't seen yet.

I was just wondering if Dakka would mind listing their coolest miniatures that most people don't know about. Stuff that is just interesting but not really used for major wargames or just stuff that's out there that has no game tied to it but could be used for stuff.

Things like The Russian Alternative etc.
